DOT Allocates $16.9 Million for Small Air Services

Department will help air services in 25 communities across 20 states.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) announced this past Wednesday that $16.5 million will be awarded to assist in the development of local air service in 20 states. Twenty-five communities will receive funding, which is made available through the Small Community Air Service Development Program, to build and maintain their local air service options in the 2022 Fiscal Year.

“In so many of our nation’s smaller communities, local air service is crucial to residents’ lives and livelihoods,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg stated. “We’re proud to award these grants to help strengthen local air service in 25 smaller communities and help Americans across the country get to where they need to go more efficiently and affordably.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Transportation Department officials as they allocate loan and grant money under various programs and initiatives.
  • For wisdom for community leaders as they implement projects with the funding.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg to be prudent in his oversight of his department.
